The National Center for Biomedical Ontology in collaboration with the Protein Ontology (PRO) and the Infectious Disease Ontology (IDO) Consortia will host a three-day dissemination workshop in Buffalo, NY on June 11-13, 2012.

Goals

Provisional goals of the meeting are:

To identify and coordinate activities on-going in the field of immunology ontology, with special attention to the use of ontologies to support clinical data analysis in flow cytometry and other fields.

CL Cell ontology immune branches (e.g. for dendritic cells)
PRO Protein Ontology
IO Immunology Ontology (Lindsay Cowell and Alex Diehl)
IEO Immune Epitope Ontology (Bjoern Peters)
MHC Major Histocompatibility Complex Ontology (Bjoern Peters)
OGMS Ontology for General Medical Science (Albert Goldfain)
